Weather,snow still about,by the afternoon milder,with rain,river on the way to high tide.
I had a walk on Halling Common this afternoon but due to the rain which started just as I arrived the visit was a lot shorter than I had wished.Birds noted - Fieldfare 4,Blackbird 2,Song Thrush 1,Meadow Pipit 15,Snipe 10+,Redshank 15+,Lapwing 24,Little Grebe 1,G C Grebe 1,Canada Goose 49,Grey lag 15 and Curlew 3.A Mistle Thrush was seen just over the first stile,this is I believe a first for me on the Common.

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and all the Best for the Near Year.

  1. Hi Alan.
    Nice walk on The Common. Would like to have been there myself. Never seen a G.C.Grebe on the river. Merry Christmas to you too.
